The Caribbean is made up of a string of islands spanning the Caribbean Sea from the tip of Florida to the northern coast of South America. Awaiting you are white-sand beaches, azure blue seas, rum cocktails and blissful sunshine. Quite simply, a tropical paradise. A holiday in the Caribbean can also be cheaper than you might think. We've put together a selection of holidays, all 4* and 5* resorts, from multiple tour operators covering destinations from CancunBarbados and Cuba to St Lucia, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, and everything in between

Most of these holidays have extra Covid protection in the form of free-amendments or money-back guarantees, for added peace of mind.
